Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

Cold starting problem

My 98 blazer doesnt start when cold. If I pour fuel into the carb it solves the problem, and I dont have any trouble starting it again till the following day. There does seem to be a slight miss when idling at stops. Any ideas what the problem is?

    i have the same problem with my 1995 blazer 4wd. I have alot of trouble starting it when its cold outside, and usually if i put gasoline into the intake by the fuel injectors it starts right up, but starts hard until it warms up and then its fine. Sometimes its ok for a day, sometimes for a few days depending on the weather. we have had a tune up, oil change, and some sensors replaced, and also a wire in the harness replaced, but it is still doing it. We have also had the fuel pressure checked and the fuel filter replaced. anyone have any other ideas?

Will not start but if i poor gas in the carburator it will then when i shut it off and then try to start it it will not start back up unless i poor gas in the carb what could it possibly be thank you....


Its faulty fuel pump.When you pour gas in carb, it gets fuel directly, but when you start without pouring gas, then fuel is not reaching there.Low fuel pressure.Replace fuel pump and fuel filter.----- Thank you.

Truck will turn over but not start


Try pouring some gas in the intake dont go nuts with gas just a few ounces if the vehicle starts and then shuts off you have a bad fuel pump. I have a 1996 Blazer and I replaced mine last year make sure if that is the problem that you shop around for a price because it could save you hundreds of dollars shop around. If it runs and keeps going it could be you fuel injectors are bad. Last winter i had to put gas into my intake when it got real cold. What happens is the fuel gels when it gets cold and it makes it harder for the injectors to take it in . I also replaced my fuel injectors now this winter it starts right up.
( If you dont no where the intake is locate your air filter and follow the intake vent where the vent hose connects to your engine. Unscrew the clamp pull off vent hose and then pour the fuel inside of engine fuel intake manifold. I will bet money your vehicle will start if it dont you have some type of electrical situation.

My chevy metro 98 1.3L starts perfect but it does


can be a number of things from fuel pump to coil pack but check the egr valve may be starting to go -remove and check for carbon build up if not fully encrusted use a carb/or a carbon cleaning solution to clean and free up valve--most problems give a code but -fuel pump-filter-air filter dont and egr will sometimes set off other sensors but usually doesnt until its to late

99 blazer, cranks but no start, pour gas in intake and it starts


well if its a 1999, it wont have a carb, it has fuel injection.take your fuel filter off and clean it or put a new on one, that should fix the problem. check your hoses too.
